Product Overview

This gorgeous wine offers a rich bouquet of violets, wild cherries, ripe currants, licorice, and cinnamon. In the mouth, it is ripe, structured, and fragrant, with complex flavors of dried fruit, tobacco and leather. The firm acidity balances the round and full body. This is a substantial wine with ripe and harmonious tannins leading to a long, rich finish. Recommended with roasted and grilled meats, casseroles, polenta with sausages and mushrooms. Perfect with aged cheeses. A classic, impressive Barbaresco.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 93
The classic 1997 Barbaresco Santo Stefano is evolved and flamboyant. A medium ruby/garnet color with an amber edge is followed by a sweet perfume of black cherries, tobacco, leather, spice box, licorice, and tar. Full-bodied, with a creamy texture, superb concentration, and an exquisite finish, it can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years.-Robert Parker

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 90
An elegant and steely Barbaresco, with plum, meat and berry character. Medium- to full-bodied, with firm tannins and a fresh, chewy finish. Best after 2003. 1,220 cases made. –JS
